No E. MARINELLA? I think those are a good choice. and i see them in good prices.
40% off and they have my sizes. Your vote Tattoo?
1 is OK, and I can see how a bolder stripe might suit Noodles. The thing is, it's so blue. And we have a problem with piling the navy on the navy.
But I could live with 1.
Isn't the 3rd one more close to a solid pretty much?
It is a bit, and that's probably why I like it as a dress shirt. Even a pattern that resolves to solid at distance gives a little warmth and texture somehow. However, I picked it mainly because the blue wasn't navy.
Ok. It's a split between 1 and 3
you miss a green and a navy blue.

and i like the green one from Wu in the first post. it's kind of like the marinella's i think these kind are really classy and the same time i don't think they are boring. but you probably should't choose both the same style
He ordered a green pindot a couple of pages back. Burgundy is his next must-have, but a navy upgrade is also on the list.
yeah right, got there now.
For the shirts... hard to say. depends on what he has.
I think shirts matter more in fit, collar, etc. and he is in a suit so i guess there's not that much to think about. Unlike ties that really stand out and make a difference.
oh and i don't have a burgundy tie not sure i will. don't you think he needs a darker brown?
I like shirt #1. Here is why...
Equality in stripe size, not too much white, as I think is the problem with 3. If those blue stripes were evenly spaced on 3, I'd like it better, but still not as much as 1. I have a couple like number 1, in a similar shade, and also in lighter shades, in a few different weaves. They are more versatile than they look on a hanger.
Edit- looked at it again. I see that the blue stripes in number 1 are slimmer than the white stripes. I would like it better if they weren't. In that case, it is a closer call between 1 and 3, but I still like the width of the stripes in 1 better.
Noodles, what shirts are those?
